New Yoiik, Juno 21.?Tho free coinage
silver advocates aro goin'g to mako
n stronuous effort to secure a free coinego
plunk in tho Democratic platform
Of Ohio, with a view of making that
question an iesuo in the State and of
bringing on n gencinl issuo on that eubjoct
iii tho. presidential election next
year. This decision was reached to-day
by the executive committee of tho National
Silver Association, which has
been in session for two days at tho Hoffman
House. Tho chairman of this
committee is General -A. J. Warner, of
Ohio, who was formerly in Congress,
where as n silver advocate ho became
known as "Silver JJill" Warner. Ho is a
Democrat of proininonco in Ohio, and
nnilnr lilg riiruction the silver associa
tion luts for two year a past been seeking
to moke silver a political issue in
thuEsst. lie came to Now York during
the campaign for Congressmen lust
fall and made a speech at Cooper Cnion
solely for tho puiposo of injecting tho
silver issue into the political atmosphere.
lie said at tho time that all ho
wanted was to keep theEast alive to tho
fact tliut there was a growing silver
question which must bo settled. The
association it made up of wealthy silver
mine oWncri. Dr. L. M. Hamsey, who
was in attendance 011 tills meeting, is
the largest stockholder in the Granite
Mountain Mine, of Montana, and owns
a iifth Interest in tho famous Bi-Motallic.
Gen. F. G. Keelands, another
member, is executor of tho Sharon estate
in Nevada and California, and is
himself ono of tho millionaire mlno
owners of that section. The association
is able to seoure contributions to an
unlimited amount from silvor men for
tho work of securing free coinage. The
plan about Ohio is first to induce the
Ohio Democratic lenders to Insert an

in tlieir plutform. It is further argued
that to raise tho silver issue will lessen
the importance of tho tariff
issue, on which Major McKinley
lias an enormous advantage
over his probublo avdersary, Governor
Campbell. But greater than all of these
inducements in the more potent one of
moner. The silver men will agree to
raise &500.0C0 for tho Ohio campaign If
tho silver issue is put to the front. In
determining on this offer they reasoned
among themselves that it can be made
the chief issue in Ohio and the Democrats
win on it, the issue will overshadow
everything eleo for 1892, and
that is a stake they think worth playing
for. They claim to have the West
and South almost solid with them, but
fear the East and Middle States. Tho
influence of conservative banking and
financial forces in these sections provents
them from securing what they
claim as their own?that is, the West
and South. So theydesiro to capturo at
least ono of the great States.
TEN DAYS UNCONSCIOUS.
Young Lntly Is Thrown Into a Cdtnleptlo
Fit, from Which She-Does not Recover.
St. Mary's, 0., Juno 21.?Considerable
interest is being manifested in the
caso of Ella Ragan, who wns, several
weeks ago, struck by lightning and still
lives, with ivory prospcct of a long lifo
before her.
What makes her experience one of unusual
interest is that immediately after
the shock sho dropped into a deep sleep,
and slumbered almost uninterruptedly
for ten days, taking onlv a little liquid
nourishment, perhaps tnreo times, when
half aroused.
Miss Ragan is a prepossessing young
lady of twenty summers, and lives with
her parents near Anna, Shelby county.
She describes the sensation of the shock
and says her mind was a perfect blank
for the ten days sho slept except for an
hour on tho Thursday following the
ouuiin>
She says there was no sensation ol
pain beyond" that of fright. Sho doscribes
the bolt of lightning as a big
ball of firu, and tho illumination was
almost painful. Dr. C. W. Harbour, ol
Anna, was called in tho night of the
shock. Ho says Miss Hagan was a typical
cataleptic.
In this tho patient experiences a puspension
of the action of tho sense und
of volition, tho body and limbs preserving
tlio position given them, while
the action of the heart and lungs continues.
During her stupor, if tlio arm
or limb of tho patient was raised to a
position impossible to be held for more
than a moment during consciousnesss,
it would remain for hours without
change.
Her body was placcd on two chairs
resting onlv on heels and the back ol
her head. In this seemingly impossible
Jiasition sho remained perfectly motioness
and rigid until it wns changed lot

ceediags against her husband, which
sho hau begun in Dakota, have boon
brought to a successful conclusion, is
without any foundation whatever ia

Although Mr/!. Blaino lma recovered

has loft her slightly lone, and
her physicians are not nolo to promise
that' this will over disappear. Mts.
Maine's lameness forbids her, of courso,
to entertuin any idea of resuming her
interrupted theatrical career. She has
written a friend in this city to corront
a report which was recently telegraphed

In her letter Mrs. Blaino savs that
she is lame for lito and has therefore
abandoned all idea of again returning
to the stage. .She also deifies that sho
is "friendless," as was stated in tho

To Her Domicile?Tho Unbecoming
Conduct of England's Future King*
No Wonder that the Good l'eoplo or
Britain are Growing Disgusted.
Londo.v, Juno 21.?For a man who
claims to bo tbo censor, tho inontor
and tho supremo ruler of English society,
tho champion of proprieties, the
X'rlnco of Wales' conduct is scarcely bocoming.
That bo is a constant visitor
to thohouso of Lord Marcus Beresford,
whoso establishment is presided over
by tho lovely but exceedingly notorious
Sirs. Charlie Buller. Tho latter is Uie
daughter of tho lato General Ridley,
who eloped from her first husband,
Colonel Kingscote, of the artillery, with
Cnptuin Charles Buller, ot the Horse
Guards, an officer whose claims to famo
aro based upon his record as a crickotor
and as tho first discoverer of Mabel
Gray, the London counterpart of tho
Parisian. Coral I'oarl. .
Subsequently the divorce court permitted
Mrs. Kingscote to contract a
marriage with Captain Buller. Matrimony,
however, in its legal furui,
proved far too commonplace to suit hor
views, and she, in course of time, abandoned
Buller for Lord Beresford. Once
more sho figured as the heroine of a divorce
caso. Lord Marcus being the coTin*.,
filfhnnirh the chnrcos
against her were proved, yet the character
of liuller was such that ho was
held to have been cognizant and consenting
party to her infidelity. The result
wan that tho Queen's Proctor intervened
and tho divorce tfas refused.
Since then she has lived openly with
Lord Marcus Beresford as his wife.
IlKJt MAIfY LIAISON'S.
Although the number of hor liaisons
has been such that sho is popularly
known by tho nauio of "Unlimited
Leo," and that at the time of her last
appearance in tho Divorce Court it was
suggested that the cntiro Carlton Club
should bo included in the list of corespondents,
yot her bomloir and drawing
rooms are crowded with portraits of
tho Prince of Wales, bearing his royal
putograph, and in many cuses a low
words of affection and admiration for
his "Dear Leo."
Another faux menage of the eamo
character is that of Sir Frederick Johnstone,
the well-known sporting baronet.
On several occasions, wlion the i'rinco
had paid his customary spring visit to
tho Riviera, ho has stayed with Sir
Frederick at the lattor's lovoly villa near

Sir FrederickJJohnstone. Although both
nho herself and her lover are now free
to legalize th'oir relations by marriage,
thoy seem to fear their matrimony
would destroy the piquancy of their relations,
and accordingly have determined
to dispenso with its bonds. Although
they live openly toeethor, their
liaison is ol the most shauiolesa and
public character, it docs not prevent
either tho Princo of Wales figuring
openly as their guest, nor does it interfere
with 'Sir Frederick's status as one
of the most welcome guests at Marlborough
House. Ho goes there by tho
name of "Freddy," and is troato'd by
tho entire family as tho Amico Delia
W1U3U.
AN ILLEGITIMATE 'CIIILD.
On the occasion of ono ol lils stays at
Snndringham, throe years ago.liis followguests
included the Conntess of Dudley,
and their niece, Miss Violet Mordaunt,
who has since become Viscountess Weymouth.
The meeting was, to say the
least, poculiar. For Lady Dndley is tho
sister and Violot Mordaunt the duughtcr
of the notorious Jjidy Mordaunt, Sir
Frederick was therefore brought face to
face undor the roof of his fellow co-respondent,
the Prince of Wales, with tho
girl who had been declared by the
courts to bo his child, and not that of
Sir Charles Mordaunt, and ho was ablo
to convince himself thnt'his daughter's
superb eyes showed no trnce of that terrible
blindness which threatened her at
her birth, and was pubHclyJattributcd
in court to the state of health of both
Sir Frederick Johnstone and of the ro
inoise-stricken motlior.
Another very queationabio momber
of tho Prince's ontonrago was?I use
tho past tense. for ho is dead now?tho
Polish adventurer who figured so long
and so prominently asCount Jaracewski
iu London society. The I'rinco picked
him up Bomewhcro on tho Continent,
and without taking thn trouble to investigate
his antecedents invested liim
with tho halo of membership of tho
Mnrlborongh Houso sot. One mornljig
tho Count was found dead in bed, a
suicide by means of cither a pistol bullet
or poison. I forget which. Beforo
aoon his aparments and papers had
boen ransacked by General hlr Dighton
Probynj who hastened over from Marlborough
House a few minuted after tho
death had been mado known to the
l'rincoj and when tho general returned
to tlto latter un iirouuiii one* wiui mm, i
much to tho relief of H. B. H.,,n huge
S artel of letters, photographs mnd condential
documents of various kinds.
Tho reason of the Count's suicide did
not long remain i' secret. JIo preferred j
ilenth to the exposure of his questionable)
antecedents and of his false colors.
Far from being a count or entitled to
the namo which he hod adopted he was
merely tho son of' a head servant and !
major-domo of a Prussian-l'ollsh uobloman.
He had been guilty <}f forging
tho latter'* namo and of cmbenling'hls
monov, bosides possessing an unsavory
record in connection with cards. And
yet for several years he had figured both
in England and abroad OS ono of tho
Princes ilearest friends, and had oven
enjoyed the privilege of wearing the

THE QCKE.V IX POLITICS.
Iniiifntitiii! of a Cumlnor Ci-InIm in ParlW
xuobjary Affair*.
London, Juno 21.?Tho position of.
tho-Queon in English politics is usually
supposed to bo generally passive. In
foreign politics Blip has boon known to
bo greatly interested, but with internal
English politics she has hitherto been
credited with interfering little.
At an opportuno moment, whoa
tho conservative scheme of local
self-government for Iroloiid is about, to
be contrasted with Sir. Gladstone's
home-rulo proposals, hSr majesty has
permitted the publication of a confidential-communication
which sliosent
to the Arch Bishop of Canterbury on
tho eve of another crisis in Irish political
history?the introduction of u
bill for the die-establishment of
tho church in Ireland. Tho inference
is that her majesty desires
to makij Archbishop Tait'a
memoirs tho medium of divulging what
her attitude then was with a-viow to
application of the information to present
events. Her majesty did not approve
of the disestabhsniont policy, but
she accepted tho decision of the, country
and tho commons used her influence
to induce the lords on tlio one hand to
accopt' the bill and Mr. Gladstone to
take a conciliatory method with the
lords.
When tho bill went into tho lords the
general expectation was that thay would
reject it, and that another of those con
constitutional criuises would arise
which threaten the existence of the
upper hpueo as now constituted.
The Queen wrote to the Archbishop:
"Consideringthe circumstances,tinder
which the measure has come to House
of Lords, tbo <Juoefui?unnot regard,
without the greatest alarm,tho probable
effort of Its absolute - rejection
in that House. Carried as it hos
been by nn overwhelming and steady
majority through a Houso of Commons
chosen' expressly to apeak the feeling
of the country on the question, there
Becras no reason to believe 'that anyfresh
appeal to the pooplo would load
to a different result.
